The Washington Post reported Tuesday that residents between the District of Columbia and New York City along the Interstate 95 corridor are expected to experience a six-hour window of heavy rainfall, with totals of 1 to 2 inches.

That rain will make its way to the New England area, assuming the storm doesn't veer East. 

Snow is unlikely in coastal areas because temperatures will still probably be too warm. 

That said, snow is probable in parts of Vermont, New Hampshire, and western Maine.

East Coast residents should also brace for whipping winds ranging from 40 to 50 mph.

December marks the end of a historically active Atlantic hurricane season, while the western U.S. is still grappling with hazardous weather conditions and wildfires.
